making 4 HSTs

rosajoe_gwSeptember 25, 2011

There are many short cuts for making different units that I try and don't bother with but I really like this method to make 4 HSTs at a time.

It does leave the bias edge on the outside but that doesn't bother me 'cause I use so much starch lol!!!


Here is a link that might be useful: HSTs

Thanks for that, Rosa. The one I suggested worked beautifully for hst's up to 2 1/2", (12 to a page),especially if you need lots of them, but I wanted some 4" hst, so your link will be a huge help.

I saw this done on a video but they didn't have the measurement chart. Thanks for sharing!

I've seen this before, Rosa, but didn't think about starching it so the bias wouldn't stretch. Sure seems easy. TFS
